Saturday, October 6, 2007

MACOMB, Ill.—Centenary’s Rebekah Hill enjoyed one of the best offensive matches of any Ladies player this season, pounding down 13 kills. However, the individual effort was not enough as the Maroon and White fell to Western Illinois 3-0 (30-15, 30-21, 30-25).

 

Centenary (1-18, 0-6 Summit) struggled to put up an effective block against the Westerwinds, and in doing so, allowed WIU to post a hitting percentage of .307. The Ladies managed only one block on the evening compared to nine team blocks for the home team.

 

Western Illinois (7-10, 4-2 Summit) clicked on all cylinders offensively, firing down 41 kills on 114 attempts with only six attack errors. The Westerwinds service game also proved exceptional, tallying 12 aces, five from Ashley Baker.

 

Erin Frick and Monique Houston paced WIU with eight kills apiece in the win. Frick added four total blocks.

 

For the Ladies, Hill’s 13 kills ties her career-high. The sophomore committed just three errors in 24 attempts for a team-best .417 attack percentage. Danielle Bochat contributed nine kills in the loss while Stephanie Hobaugh had eight kills. Setter Lindsay Bekelja passed out 36 assists and recorded 11 digs for a double double. Yvonne Ramirez collected a match-high 17 digs.

 

Centenary will return home for three matches next week in the Gold Dome. The Ladies will kick off the week with Jackson State on Tuesday at 6 p.m. before welcoming North Dakota State and South Dakota State in Summit League action on Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m.
